Freshly tapped and drafted into a pint glass from the good ol boys down at Churchill's.
A: Pours a very bright and clear straw pale color with a light haziness to it. Mine had a very thin pure white head that dissipated rather quickly. This baby bubbled away and laced my glass like some sexy lingerie.
S: Very clean apricot aromas with some soft subtle notes of sweet piney hops. Not very pungent at all. That's all I am really picking up here.
T: So nice and refreshingly light. Hops are more apricot and some subtle pine notes like that of the aromas. Nice bittering that prickles the throat and dries out the finish a bit.
M: Superb in my opinion. So light and creamy
with a great hop bight that rounds it all out.
D: Amazing. This brew is so light and refreshingly hoppy with an incredible smooth creaminess to it. I could drink these all day long for sure.
BP is the brew for me! While not over bearingly hoppy the Blind Pig still packs a punch. Superbly balanced with a light and creamy body. Highly recommended for those who are looking to get into hoppier beers.

on tap at Interurban, Portland
Mad off-white lace over pale amber.
Mint leaf and lemon zest on the nose.
Light caramel and toast, some orchard fruits (yellow plum, peach) then light pine, citrus, and resin in perfect ratio.
Tangerine skin end and children’s aspirin linger.
Light to slightly medium, oily, a bit of chew.
Balanced like a katana. So light, crisp, round and just the right amount of hoppy. Deserves its legendary status.
